Attendee Code of Conduct and Anti-Harassment Policy

 

The mission of MIT Technology Review is to inform our audience about important new technologies. We have curated a series of discussions that includes a wide range of views on the most significant technologies and trends of the year. We value diversity of ideas and perspectives from our speakers and our audience. We are proud to bring varying points of view to our stage, and are committed to providing a respectful and harassment-free environment for our speakers and audience. Harassment is unwelcome or hostile behaviour, including speech that intimidates, creates discomfort, or interferes with a person's participation or opportunity for participation, in the event. Harassment in any form, including but not limited to harassment based on race, religion, sex, gender, age, colour, creed, disability, citizenship, national origin, marital status, military status, pregnancy, childbirth and pregnancy-related medical conditions, or any other status protected by laws in which the event is being held, will not be tolerated. Harassment includes the use of abusive or degrading language, intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Individuals violating these standards may be sanctioned or excluded from further participation at the discretion of the organisers.
